Historic American Fruit Trees

These apples and pears were grown in North America during the Colonial Era and through the time of the American Civil War. Some of them – such as the Bartlett pear – have enjoyed centuries of sustained public life, while others faded from view as the populist stars of the 20th century dominated grocery stores. Today a renewed interest in "all things orchard" brings these heirloom classics back into circulation to the delight of hobbyists and growers across the country.

For more on the history of the apple in America and around the world, see our page Fruit Tree Books.
